This was last weekend's Saturday market. Everything looked good but then that day was just so hot 9728128560

I was contemplating whether to eat or not because of the weather. In the end, I ended up buying a stick of wagyu (100php) & beef shawarma with buttered rice (110php). It was a simple meal except for the wagyu which i find pricey pero masarap naman 128517.

On this particular visit i had:
1. A bleu cheese slowburger from Down To Earth. Excellent! Fresh ingredients, juicy patty grilled just right, one of my favorite burgers. Ever.
2. Stanford & Shaw ginger ale. Automatic 5 stars. Need I say more haha.
3. Okonomi-fries from Bao MNL. It wasn't bad! Made for a good sidekick to the burger haha. Loved the crispy pork belly bits.
4. Tochi cookies in matcha green tea and salted caramel macadamia flavors. Ahhh these were really good, chewy, richly flavored cookies. Its hard to top these one's. Though i found them too expensive at P300 for a pack of 5 small pcs(?). And no, you can't just buy per piece lang. My fault for being takaw tingin and ordering 2 packs right after sampling the cookies. Then being too shy to take my order back after finding out how much they cost 128514

Out of the ordinary finds here, according to the standards of Makati city dwellers. Local and international food are sold here. The Bgy Bel-Air & the ladies of Bel-Air have been doing a fine job running this market.

Come early as it gets hot by 9am. Wear a hat. Food supply also dwindles later in the day. Parking is free on Sundays, just make sure you leave your car between the white demarcation lines.

Don't come super hungry, you might be tempted to buy everything you see. Or eat something right away before you actually go around. A cup of warm taho is the cheapest pre-breakfast meal.

There are a lot of good finds here, but there are also misses. Ask to taste if you're not sure, most of them will let you. There's a hot santol dish made with gata that I really liked last time I was here. It was the first time I had and heard of one. I also liked the stuffed crab (relleno) and tuna belly I got.

I bought everything in the attached photos (except for the pigeon), plus a couple more without photos, as I had to shop for salted egg chips (walang discount even if we bought 10 tubs 128529) to send to family overseas and assemble an instant lunch for visiting family. Our Salcedo finds went well with our pick up orders from Hey Handsome.

Finally tried Bun Appetit. Sayang, was just ok for me. Got myself a lobster and my friend got the crab. I liked the crab more. They need a better bun and a better dressing. My lobster tasted a bit bland to me.

I was tempted to get the golden fried kalapati. The vendors swear it tastes good, but I don't know... city pigeons creep me out. More like worried about what they could be eating in the city. Anyone tried this na?

If you like a certain vendor, get their deets kaagad, because you'll never know how long they'll be selling here and you'll be bummed if you return and they're not there.

If you're thinking of being a vendor here, make sure you have something different. Crinkles and cookies won't get you a spot.

4 stars. I like it enough to visit this place once in awhile.

I am a fan of Weekend Markets as this is my way of supporting local business owners and waving my dirty finger at the big corporations.

Anyway, i am not here to defend the oppressed, i am here to write about my all time favorite weekend market - Salcedo Community Market!

I get stuff here all the time - from pastries down to organic produce. I recently found out that there is a stall that sells black kutsinta - Woo-hoo! *happy dance*. I never there is such till my homie Abe C let us try it. What makes it black is the molasses - nifty eh? Spread some caramel sauce and sprinkle some toasted coconut (is it?) and you are all set.

Ze black kutsinta is another reason for me to love Salcedo!

I found time to initially just drop by and try Bun Appetit's lobster grilled cheese (see separate review for that under Bun Appetit), but ended up with waaaayyyy more on my plate, literally!

Guys, Bun Appetit's lobster grilled cheese is a must and very much worth the hefty price tag and trip to Salcedo, even if only to try it once. I never knew lobster could raise the bar of an already good grilled cheese on so many levels. The taste of the gooey cheese on lobster between 2 crisp bread slices is droolworthy.

There's this burger stall called Down To Earth Slowburger thats tucked in a far corner. I"ve noticed since way back that they trumpet their cause for all natural fresh ingredients and local produce. Now its only this week i've come around to trying their burger and... wow... wow. Just seeing how they prepare and grill the patties, and torch a generous amount of cheese over it was a visual feast in itself. This is a REALLY good quality burger and great tasting, i believe they deserve a lot more word-of-mouth publicity.

Stanford & Shaw has always been a personal favorite and market staple anywhere. Haha i also now noticed and appreciated how their instruction board also had a translation in Korean. 9786 🇰🇷 예. 화이팅~ 9996

I missed an old favorite, the Pizza Di Grazzia by Chef Antonio. I couldn't find it. 128532 But no worries as that presented the chance to try something new... Pizza Morena! I've remember seeing them before as well but haven't gotten over to checking them out coz of the aforementioned old favorite that used to be situated almost right beside. Thought it made sense to try the special the first time around, aptly named the Pizza Morena. It was different, no meat and just mozzarella, mascarpone, pistachio, honey, and truffle oil. Different, but delicious! A mix of sweet and savory prepared in a similar way as Antonio's!

What's amazing about the Salcedo Saturday Market is that, despite its being something like 10 years old (or more), I seem to discover new things to buy here every visit.

Salcedo is our version of a nice neighborhood weekend market, like those you'd see in communities in London, Stockholm or Paris. People selling dry goods as well as wet ones, trinkets to truffles, churros to churrascos. And through the years, there have been those that branched out to bigger things, and those that are fairly new to the Metro Manila affluent crowd or foodies that want you to try their offering.

My classic eats here include,

Tita Ope's (or mother to a classmate of mine) awesome lasagna's, lengua, callos and trademark bread pudding.

Vargas Kitchen's great butter cake and frozen brazo (they've since moved on to Powerplant aside from their Makati residence).

Ineng's barbecue (though not unique since they're now everywhere).

But I also like nice dishes like the roast duck and dimsum stall near the wet market side. I've ordered their siomai and hakaw there plus fried rice.

I also got to try the awesome House of Crisps' top quality salted egg potato chips a few months ago (order ahead to pick up in bulk here). And Truly Homemade Chips' kamote chips barbecue flavor are quite good, too. Oh, and THC too has its rendition of Salted Egg chips for pre orders.

I also love Saikoro Steak's Wagyu rice and Wagyu cubes. They sell frozen Wagyu cubes, too. Yummmmm...

On occasion, there would be a stall or two in front (Leviste St side) of the Salcedo Market entrance where they would be on a trial basis. That's where we tried last Sept caramel kutsinta from Baguio, which was pretty good, we came back the following week for that. Although we didn't see them anymore last weekend.

Our recent discovery here last weekend is Cinq. My wife got a fabulous caramel Pecan Pie from Cinq last week and we saw them here this past weekend. Their dayap tart is awesome. Just right tartness and levels of sweetness. Graham crust. Wow. The chocolate macadamia dessert of theirs is rich, too. Aside from Cinq Dessert Boutique, another nice discovery for take home is Quisina's pre prepared cook it at home salted egg chicken (seen in the pic), yummy.

For my brunch last weekend, I just had 2 piece Ineng's barbecue (the Java rice is forgettable), plus a an original Z's sausage for brunch. There are days when you don't want to overthink things and just buy things that are tried and tested. Besides, I was hungry na. 128521

Anyway, if you haven't been here yet, visit Saturday morning as it's only open every Saturday. Around 7 to 1pm. Prime time is before lunch so don't be too late. Things can get pretty hot despite the tents. But since it's December, it's a great time to dive in, discover new things. Whether it's food to eat on the spot, take home, of to gift this season, you may very well discover something new here like I do almost every visit.

I took advantage of last saturday sunny weather and went straight here, it was already approaching lunch hour so some items were already long gone like Australian Beef Burger which i would recommend trying out at least once, from my previous visits they sell out at around 11am so better come here early.  Theres the usual seller on their respective area nothing much had changed only for a few that i couldnt remember what the previous tenants were selling.

Ive noticed that bun appetite found a new place but still inside the tent area.  I didnt bought my meal from them cause i have limited budget that day.  I first went for japanese pancakes at P20 each, such sulit as it eases my hunger as im waiting for my burger.  I proceed had a cup of cold ginger beer, such a winner here, very refreshing with as little as 1% alcohol.  The quarter pound burger with price tag of 100 each was just a few steps away, took an order here before proceeding to circle my way at the market.  Afterwhich i bought milea honey, damn!!! They increase their price much faster than gasoline. Asked for discount but was lecture how low the increase in this area as compare to their other outlets.

Proceed to take buy my favorite avocado drink at 150 each. Go try out their sample so youll know which drink suit your taste.  I almost forgot to buy my rice millet but at 50 each it was probably the sosyal versoon of suman nonetheless it was really good.

Weekend salcedo market start very early like 7am till 1pm.  But its always better to come here early. 128522

I've been wanting to visit this place ever since but because it's only available on Saturdays and we usually leave BGC and go home on Fridays. 128546 So no chance at all. But just recently, my aunt and I were able to finally visit Salcedo Market! Yayy!!!! 128588🏼

The only goal was to buy from Bun Appetit but we both got overwhelmed with the choices and options available. There were so many stores selling and offering so many different things that even before we locate Bun Appetit, we were able to buy some already. 128517

First thing that caught my attention was the Taho. There's really something about Taho that makes me excited and want to order one. We got one small order for 20 pesos. 128513

Saw a stall with different kinds of Suman. There are 3 kinds available, all are from Pampanga. They have Tamales, Sa Lihia, and the "usual suman". We got 2 orders for 60 pesos each. My mom liked this that she asked me to buy again the weekend after. 128518

Then my aunt saw Ineng's. Bought 5pcs of BBQ for just 149 pesos. We liked and enjoyed how tender and yummy their BBQs are. Sarap with vinegar!!! 128525

While walking, we saw a stall preparing Japanese pancakes. We got curious (or natakam? 128517) that we tried the cream cheese and cheese flavor. For just 20 pesos per piece, not bad!

And then my aunt saw this stall that sells Fresh Chinese Lumpia. We love fresh vegetable lumpia so much (Chinese lumpia is so much better than the usual fresh lumpia with ubod or togue) and we just can't not buy if we see one. Got one order of the lumpia for just 60 pesos. We loved that the lumpia is siksik with so much vegetables inside. Yummy!! 128077🏼

And finally, the main reason why we went here... BUN APPETIT. I've been dying to try their rolls and I want to understand why a lot are still buying even though it's so expensive. One roll can already be a meal good for 2 or even 3 persons. 128518 Anyway, the goal is to try them so no turning back now. 128517128541

They only have 3 options - shrimp, crab or lobster. We were able to try both the Lobster and Crab roll. I was surprised with how small the roll was while we watch them prepare our orders. Around 6 inches or less? It was really small that I suddenly want to not buy anymore. Ang liit tas mahal!!!! 128534128543 BUT OMG. When you get to try it! First bite and you'll understand why a lot are getting this. The bun was so soft, buttery, and tasty. It may be small but it carries a lot of fresh yummy crab and lobster meat. A LOT of pure crab and lobster meat. They are very generous with the filling. We liked and enjoyed how simple yet so yummy they both were. Not sure but maybe you can ask for some more lemon and/or mayo if you want and add sriracha for that kick. I swear, it's really good! Worth the try!128076🏼

We went home super happy that we are already planning to go back again and again. 128521128517

I had a few recent discoveries that kept me coming back almost every weekend:

Bun Appetit (already reviewed on |ooloo) - so far I've tried the shrimp roll and the lobster grilled cheese. Both are great but kinda breaks the bank.

House of Crisps - the phenom salted egg chips now has a stall here till end of the year. Yay! I recently compared them to Irvin's and the Pinoy chips are saltier (likely because of our taste buds) and richer.

BAO.MNL - a Gourmand Market regular, you can now get their unique baos and the lovely okonomifries every weekend 128523

Saikoro Steak - want wagyu on a budget? Get your fix here! I can probably eat at least 5 sticks (of 4 cubes) of these before I get sick of them. Sooooo good I could just cry. They also sell a pack of frozen cubes too for delivery.

Al Halabi - this is where I get my hummus and falafel. Spell suki 128514

Be warned, it is kinda hot with the tents simulating the greenhouse effect. Even on rainy days it isn't cold here. Best to enjoy your treats in peace at the neighboring Velasquez park. When I met up with Ang-ang P there was a couple that even had a picnic blanket they spread under the big tree - so cute 128525

I almost always here every Saturday. There was a time that I messaged Kristin A and we had a quick breakfast with my friend. Salcedo > Legazpi for me. From Machang to Grilled Sweetcorn they have it here even Himalayan Salt and some porcelain wares, plants and a lot more. Must-try these skewers from one of the stalls.

Every Time that we come here, isa lang ang goal namin: to eat the grilled boneless bangus. Mahal na sya ngayon, 180 na. Dati 150 lang. Pero matindi, masarap pa din. May suki kami, yung kantong tindahan sa mga grilled. Try nyo dun.

This time, niloko namin mga sarili namin kaya eto, may ampalaya din. Di lang ako sure kung matutuwa ba ako or what kasi di mapait ampalaya e. Feeling ko naalis na mga bitamina nya nung nawala ang pait.

To make this Saturday more makasalanan, nag order dib kami ng bagnet kasi na miss ng kuya yun, wala kasi nun sa dagat.

At last but not the least, langka na masarap at matamis para sa panghimagas.

Go na sa Salcedo every Saturday!

The Beef Shawarma I bought from Bersi Gyro was just ok. Would've been better if the beef quality was better.

The churros from Don Churro was good! Even better, you can order just 3 pieces! And the chocolate dip, it was thick but it wasn't very sweet. Loved it!

My supplies are already down so need to buy items at the salcedo weekend market, woke up early but i dont want to come here too early so a little sleep and there its already 11am, went here by 12 noon and its as hot as any humid summer could be, cant believe it was just a thunderous rainy night a few hours back.

Went here with a newly wothdrawn money and an hour after its almost gone. So whats the culprit?
1. Ginger beer at 200 each bottle, totally refreshing, will be back next week for more of this.

2. Quarter Pounder Hamburger at 100, at 100 a piece its way way better than the fast food burger. This is sold at the.far end of the market.

3. Avocado Juice at 150 each, try every flavor as you can, i recommend avocado, guyabano, berries with hemp but the choice is up to you.

4. Millet rice cakes at around 50 each. Go for their bestsellers which is the plain one but the mango flavor was equally good.

5. Multifloral local honey at 485 for a bottle, bought 2 bottles, 1 to be given to a friend. Honeys a known antibacterial for cough and the likes. And by the way, their stingless bess honey was really good. A good alternative for manuka honey. It taste sweet bitter. Yes its bitter. But good for bodys natural defense.

I noticed kale here is abundant, And there it goes.... my fresh withdrawn money that i wouldnt think twice to spend on food. 128522

It's been a while since we've been to Salcedo's Saturday Market. We grabbed the chance to check it out yesterday since we were in the area. We were hesitant because it was almost 1pm already and it was super hot. Since we found a parking slot nearby, we braved the heat.

We went around all of the food stalls before deciding. Since it was almost closing time, there were some items that weren't available anymore. But a great majority of the stalls still had a lot to offer.

I saw some familiar stalls like Monster Burger, The Breadery, the kebab stall, the sausage stall, the fruit shake stall, the cotton candy cart, the dirty ice cream cart and a whole lot more.

First order of business was Manong's Bagnet Station which I reviewed in the restaurant's looloo page. We had the Sisig Bagnet from there. That Pork BBQ had generous thick servings of meat that were seasoned just right. The Tawilis tasted great but tended to shrivel when we separated them. I prefer smaller fried tawilis that are extra crunchy and I don't have to worry about the tinik. The Ensaladang Talong was good. I liked the Bagoong Balayan that came with it. Our tall glasses of Mango Shake and Apple Shake helped quench our thirst and keep us cool. I wasn't able to take note of their brands/names since we were rushing before they all closed down for the day.

Tables and chairs are set up in the middle area covered with tents. The eating area where we sat was under a tree which lessened the heat of the sun. There was another dining area near the park as well. Garbage cans are very visible and most areas were clean. There was a restroom too.

I would love to come back the next time we're in the area. There are still a lot of things we haven't tried. Crossing my fingers though that it would be much cooler the next time.

This has become my weekend habit but i see nothings wrong with it other than leaving my freshly withdrawned money half gone, and coming here with just shirt, short and sandals while other peeps are all dressed up.

The burger i got was called monsters burger, taste much likes brothers burger but i dont think its made from australian beef as advertised. The green thing is a pure avocado blend/juice, no sugar or milk, i like it, just a side note, any one prefer avocado on their sandwiches???

Also bought small pancakes at 20 each. Really good with cream cheese flavor.

Went here to buy organic local honey, but i wpuld suggest to watch out for the price, it had increased as compare to last week, i was told that it was because of the supply of their honey was abit low in this season, the flower source was multi floral as compare to sunflower last week. Also bought stingless honey as some sort of medicinal honey for my colds, its a local and cheap version of manuka honey.

One of the most organized and best weekend market we have in manila. The sosyal version of palengke.hehe..128512 what I love about this market is that they have various fresh veggies and fruits that are hard to find in other markets. I love how you can buy fresh kale, cherry tomato, beetroots and other delicious veggies. The choices for seafoods are also good but a little quite expensive compare to the ordinary market.

Since 2004 salcedo market also bring good food choices. They have variety of food stall that serve good dishes like the Pizza Morena. Their signature pizza morena is a must try. The brickoven pizza topped with creamy mascarpone, mozarella cheese and some pistachio nuts. It was so good with the drizzled truffle oil. Add some honey to add a little sweetness. We alao tried out some seafoods and streetfood like isaw and tenga. Love the grilled tuna panga.

For drinks we went for our favorite fresh ginger ale. This one is a good thirst quencher and a very healthy drink.

After eating we went another round around the market and bought some homemade dips. Try out Grace mushroom chicken spread. That was good!

Overall salcedo market is a great market to visit if you want to have a foodtrip at the same time shop for some fresh goods. Just be sure to come early the place is very sunny hot in the afternoon. 128512128076

Best time to be here is around 10am, when its not yet too hot nor too early for a saturday lunch, one must scan around the market first to prioritize what to buy coz if your like me who strolls here with only a fixed amount of money, you'll surely be short on budget. The market is not that big, its just a typical makati parking converted to a weekend market.

Coming in from tordesillas, on the left is the fruits sections that sells peeled jackfruit per kilo.

Further down is the plant area, the air plant looks cool, just bought one tobe place inside car, it looks like a some sort of dried pinoy seaweed, place it on top of a bald friends head would be instant laughtrip.

Moving on, dont ever miss the grassfed australian organic burger, hmmm, doesnt taste anything like an aussie burger but it sure looks organic, one sign is the beef pattie doesnt hold up together that much.

Dont miss the takoyaki that has bits of real tako and cream cheese pancakes, these 2 stores are just adjacent to each other.

Fan of ginger ale? Take note that its much cheaper here, same brand being sold at upscale restaurant. 200 for 1 big bottle. Resfreshing.

Missed the australian burger? Coz it rans out if you get here by 11am. Theres another good burger stall further inside the market. Taste like brothers burger at just 98 quarter pounder.

Ooh, support our local honey industry. I always buy my honey here from batangas, not a fan of honeys sold at supermarket. Organic local are always the best. Sunflower and coconut honeys are in season.

Care for some lamb meat? Theres one here... eerr moving on. Be sure to buy some Budbud gourmet suman, i guarantee you will like it, comes with coco sugar or regular white sugar.

Still got plentry of budget??? Why not try the lobster sandwich located inside the tent, its a bit expensive, hmmm.. no its really expensive 128522 but worth a try or maybe try their shrimp sandwich instead, its literally made of real shrimps. Chunks of shrimps.

Lastly, dont forget to buy some fresh juice that comes in bottle at 150 each. Flavors such as guyabano, mixed berries with hemp and bignay to name a few.

This is for Bun Apetit's Lobster Roll... Tried it after seeing a post raving about it. Simple bread, almost like an ordinary white loaf loaded with butter, not skimpy on lobster although the general size of the entire sandwich isn't huge either. The lobster itself was bland, same taste you'll get from cooked frozen lobster from seafood suppliers. No frills, no vegetables. I understand the P595 price tag but cannot see the worth on this sandwich.
